Hello fello BDW Brides!! Thank you all for sharing your beautiful dresses!!

 

I have a dilemma and could use some advice. I found a dress online and had the bridal store order it for me with 1/2 down pymt. The dress won't be in until end of June... sooo since then I have decided I do not want this dress and have decided on a totally different style.

 

I found a 2nd dress that I think I love and I was able to try it on, my only concern is that the front it is too plain. I'm comptelely in love with the back BUT the back is not going to be the focal point so I have to decide if it's enough. Ugh... so stressed. I have attached front a back pics of both dresses... any advise, thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

 

1st pic is the dress I ordered and now don't want (ball gown, modern, couture), 2nd pic is the dress I think I want (simple, classic with a dramatic back)??

hey debbie - I think both are great in their own right, and it really comes down to what you like and what you think looks best. what if you waited until the first dress was in and then tried them on back to back? have someone take pictures and see which you prefer. you may find your instincts were right on the first - then again, it may be that you really grew to love the second. but I think it's especially tough without trying both dresses in the same day.

 

I'd say not to panic just yet - you have a fantastic dress AND a fabulous back-up -- not to mention time to spare before the wedding. just see how you feel after trying on the one you ordered and then go from there. best of luck. : )

Thanks kellygrrl... really appreciate your feedback! I think your right I need to try both on the same day. I just wish I didn't second guess so much! I knew I would have a hard time finding the right dress... I can barely figure out what to wear everyday to work let alone for my wedding! Lol

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
